Which drive shafts (BGA or GKN)

Ok, I've been searching and researching which to go for. The oem mfr is GKN, but you can get far cheaper ones made by UK company BGA. And by cheaper I mean GKN ~£280 and BGA ~£100.

Has anyone fitted the BGA ones? If so, how are they holding up?

GKN are the best by far, only make recommended. Thumbs Up
 It can when others can't,
It will when others won't,
It goes where others don't.

Yeah, I'm leaning towards this. But I am wondering though, how good the BGA ones are given that they are manufactured by a UK company formed in 1929. Hmm, decisions Wink

They do a ton of parts for the Discovery.

Just be careful interpreting their sales leaflets.

For example the back of the inlet manifold one says "engineered in Britain" They still could be manufactured in China.

Yeah, good point. I'm going to go GKN. It seems the sensible thing to do as I'm keeping her for, hopefully, many years to come. Well, until I can't buy diesel any more. Thanks.
